this water cooling got a set of CPU&GPU.

and also this is my first time to use a water cooling

reccommend you move this thread to the water cooling section for better advise from experts in that area.

Pretty obscure brand, that's almost reason enough not to go for it, cant find anything other than user reviews on it.
However, did find this.

Aluminium is not a metal you want in a water loop, it corrodes very easily with other metals.

The included coolant is pointless and you only get 250ml, a loop of that size would definitely need more.
Also the thread size on the ports isn't even G1/4, so upgradability on it will be limited unless you want to fork out on adapters (doesn't even specify what thread it is).

From one of the user reviews, it gets temps within 10c of a H50.

IMO, its not worth buying.
A better option would be an XSPC Raystorm 750 kit, much better than that Larkooler.

It's got a brass interior, which is fine, but only the fins are made of aluminum. However, copper-finned rads make up pretty much every other rad on the market, and aluminum is a pretty shitty heat conductor in comparison to copper.

In conclusion, same result - do not buy.

The radiator tubes are copper, double row single pass, no tanks. I would take a pass on this one also, $20 cheaper could get you a Rasa 450 with perhaps better thermal performance and maybe better fans without LEDs.
